Welcome to my day.
The fantabulous Kelley Koehler, the “Supreme Branch Manager of Thompson’s Realty Tucson Operations”, is moving on.
(Maybe if I had bestowed that glorious title on her sooner she’d have stuck around. Yeah, probably not.)
Kelley is a lot of things, including a world-class geek ”“ and I say that with the utmost endearment and respect. She’s going to join Zeek Interactive which is run by Jeff Turner, a man who despite busting up my Tucson operations, I have mad respect for.
I don’t know exactly what Zeek does. They have their fingers in a lot of things ”“ web development, consulting, applications development, all that sort of nerdy stuff. But I do know they are good at all of what they do.
Kelley will be a huge asset to Zeek, and Jeff knows that.
And it’s something Kelley wants to do. I know for a fact she didn’t make the decision lightly and on impulse. She doesn’t fly that way. Heck, she probably put things on a spreadsheet and wrote formulas and stuff to help her decision process. If there was a flow chart in there too I wouldn’t be surprised.
So while we are sorry to see her leave, we are ridiculously happy for her.
I’d wish her luck, but she doesn’t need it. She’ll be a smashing success.
But she’ll always be Housechick to me.
